4:31 pm
in -- >> moscow, russia. >> see why. he's a guy who's all wrapped up in hang gliding. >> what is that cocoon-looking thing? >> and most importantly, what happens when he lands? and it's the vending machine from hell, because it never gives us what we want. >> a3 gives us a8. >> see how many tries until we crack the code. >> oh, i got it! in china, a tricky rescue because of an overflowed dam. you see a taxi driver stuck in rising floodwaters, had to bail out of his vehicle, obviously. now, these aren't just like some still, easy floodwaters. look at these things, it looks like raging rapids. >> do i see two people in the water? >> that was actually the driver's female passenger.
4:32 pm
she was able to float down to a more shallow part of the river where rescue workers were able to save her. the driver was stuck in these floodwaters for more than an hour. we got this video from ipn news. of course rescue crews show up at the scene. the first attempt to get this guy to safety failed. i think they tried to maybe throw a rope out to him or something. that didn't work. what they had to bring in next was a crane and had to dangle one of these rescue workers over this guy to give this guy a life jacket. eventually able to kind of scoop him up and pull him over to safety. fortunately, he was uninjured after this whole incident. >> uninjured, but scared out of his mind. >> and in need of a new taxi, because i don't think you're going to save that thing. on this show we've heard of babies being born in cars and other interesting places. we haven't had this yet. she got a call from her sister who said i'm about to have the baby. >> i said how long have you been having contractions?

she said since last night. >> she'd been in labor for a while. >> why did she wait so long? >> i don't know, you ask her. >> look where she had the baby. >> in the bathroom? >> on the toilet. >> what? >> she said her sister had the baby on the toilet. >> it's very small in there. and the paramedics -- even the cop had it on his hands. it was tough for them to maneuver in the bathroom. >> mom and baby are okay. the baby did not drown. get this, she says yeah, some people might think this is unusual but not in my family. >> my younger brother was born in the bathroom toilet, so it's not unusual for me to hear. >> but there's bacteria and stuff in the toilet. you don't want your newborn falling in the toilet. >> hopefully they had a clean bowl. >> honestly it's not like they had the baby in the toilet and let him swim around down there. i'm sure they scooped him out and took him to the hospital right away. >> it must be a tradition, we have our babies in the toilet.
4:34 pm
some people do hospitals, some people do bathtubs. >> for that kid, everything is looking up from here. you start your life in the toilet, every day is going to be better than your first day. this video shows an attack that is being handled as a hate crime by los angeles police. there ses to be some sort of verbalcoronfntation. r o th walk away o of them, wea that hooded sweatshirt, runs back towards the other two with a weapon and ends up stabbing one of those two guys in the stomach. >> oh, my gosh! >> the friend of one of the men that has been stabbed runs behind the assailant. once the guy in the hooded sweatshirt realizes he's being followed, he turns around and takes a swing at the second man striking him on his hip fracturing his pelvis. both men were treated at a hospital and they were released. >> police are saying this is a hate crime because the suspects made derogatory remarks regarding the victim's sexual orientation. >> that's awful.
4:35 pm
i mean you're going to make the remarks and then attack them too? >> i cannot believe in this day and age, we have people who are willing to injure someone because they don't like what they're gay. >> but get this, a blogger, your friend savannah, apparently she's a friend of the two victims, and she says on her blog they're not even gay, they just support gay rights and sometimes they wear pins and c represents their support for the gay community. >> i maimagine the police are after these guys, though. >> police hope someone recognizes these people involved in this crime and do call the lapd. i have a couple of videos for you guys. this one is from moscow, russia. out for a sunday drive. watch closely. it looks like everything is normal but, wait. and there it just all falls to pieces. >> oh, my. >> wow.

4:37 pm
>> it's hard to tell what started this but this car coming from the opposite direction of the camera just barrels into the two cars that are parked on the side of the road. this whole group of people -- if i ever go to russia, i'm going to be really careful. i'm taking public transportation. >> yeah, like that's going to be much better. so, just how many ways are there to open a beer bottle? >> oh, nail gun? >> how to video that could be your next beer friend next. what do we have here? >> a little morning love. no one complains about that. >> until the kid shows up. see how he directs the i was paying too much with cable.
